I've read about him. Apparently he got back to Nagasaki on a train.
Initially at least the bombs didn't interrupt transport services. Talk about
leaves on the line.

Yes, one of them was a man from Nagasaki on a business trip to
Hiroshima. After being patched up, he made it back to Nagasaki and was
explaining to his boss what had happened. "Then there was a purple flash
- just like that..."
A number of the other Hiroshima survivors had been evacuated to Nagasaki.
